Meet Barbie and Cleo - they're in search of furrrr-ever homes. Barbie is an 11-year-old Shih-Tzu who is already spayed. She is a playful girl, who loves attention and lots of affection! Barbie is friendly with everyone she meets, and hasn’t lost her curiosity to explore her surroundings! Cleo is a 3-year-old domestic medium hair, who is already spayed and current on her rabies vaccination. Cleo has been at the Adoption Center for several weeks after a medical condition forced her owner to have to surrender her. This sweet girl loves affection, likes to be brushed, and enjoys catnip, toys, and treats. You may notice the odd shape of Cleo’s ear – she was surrendered with ear mites, which Animal Services staff had treated, and she is now good as new! To learn more about Barbie, Cleo, or any other pets available for adoption with Flower Mound Animal Services, please visit www.flower-mound.com/animaladoptions.
